I suspect this is a point you understand, but for the sake of clarity
The "googleearth-package" package/.deb/[theoretical .rpm], absolutely
DOES have an open source license.
What the _tool_ that it _provides_, does, is to generate a
non-open-source rpm from a simple commandline invocation and network access.
Please, it's fine if you don't want to be the one to do this, but from a
legal and open-source perspective, I think that
googleearth-package*.[s]rpm belongs in fedora just as much as the
current .deb belongs in debian.
